Overview Features

When the Telecaster® debuted in 1950 its solid body helped bring the guitar to the forefront of popular music. The simple slab-style body played and sounded great, and was easy to customize. Countless artists including Brad Paisley, Keith Richards, and Jim Root have tweaked their Tele® bodies to create a signature sound. Now Warmoth's huge range of options lets you create a boutique-quality Tele® replacement body customized for your own tastes and playing style.

  • 2-3/16" (56mm) neck pocket fits any vintage/original USA Tele® spec neck heel.
  • Pre-drilled neck mounting holes for easy assembly.
  • Top or rear-routed controls, for a modern or vintage look.
  • Many pickup routs available, all with pre-drilled wiring channels for quick and easy installation.
  • Huge range of hardtail and tremolo bridge routs.
  • Hundreds of wood, Laminate Top, and finish options.

Shown with optional tummy cut contour

When beautiful woods are used on a body, it is often desirable to cut the control cavity from the back. This way there is no need to cover the beautiful wood with a pickguard. This is called "Rear Routing" and it allows maximum exposure of the face wood.

This larger cavity allows very near stock positioning of the 3-way switch and pot holes. Cavity depth is 1-1/2" leaving a face thickness of 1/4" except in the area of the switch where the thickness is only .090".

There is no extra charge to have any or all the control holes cut in their standard positions (shown above).

All rear routed bodies are supplied with a recessed cover plate and mounting screws.

Tele® Replacement Guitar Bodies Comfort Contour Options

Telecaster® Tummy Cut
Telecaster® Forearm Contour

Chambered Tele® Bodies can have the same Comfort Contours as a Strat® body.
A Tummy Cut or a Forearm Cut are $15 each.

For the Ultimate in personal preference, our special Unique Choice option lets you pick the actual laminate top we will use for your body from below. Simply add its price to the table price above.
